Tip 1 – Do your research
The number one complaint we get from hiring managers is candidates not knowing too much about the company they are applying to. Doing your research on the companies attending the job fair—their mission statement, company culture, and open positions—not only helps you ask intelligent questions and engage with recruiters but also allows you to stand out from other candidates. If you see a position you want to apply for, go ahead, apply online, and use the job fair as a way to meet recruiters face to face. Hiring managers will see you as a strong potential hire willing to go the extra mile.
This is how you will stand out.
